Of Sen. Geo. W. McBride s
Bis Work in Upper House of Congress
Fralstd Member of Use Most
At various times during the past two
years , since the j factional controversy
arose in the Republican party of Ore
gon, the Orfgonian of Portland, as the
organ of a faction, has persistently mis
represented the standing and ability of
the senior senator frcim Oregon, Hon.
Geo. W. McBride. j That paper has
sought to injure him ; in the esteem of
the people of his state and of the coun
try by malicious; attacks, representing
him as a man of little or no ability or
force of character,; asserting that his
committee positions -are such as are
given; to the small men of the senate,
and pointing 'fiirn out as a "political
trimmer" and a man of no positive con
victions -upon great public questions.
Iff order that the people of Oregon
may know the standing, influence, effic
iency and ability of ! Senator McBride
in the United States Senate, his position
upon matters-, of; public moment, and
his work in the yariOus committeees of
which he is a member, the Statesman
has, through its j special correspondent
in Washington, submitted inquiries oh
these points to prominent senators and
publishes today the j answers, thus far
received, with no; further, comment than
to point out the fact that few men in
public life today have attained such
standing among theirassociatcs as would
warrant that flattering testimonials re
garding ability, influence and character.

Senator Knute Nelson, of Minnesota,
says: . , ;
, "I en4erel the ; Senate at the same
time wifh Senator McBride, and have
been associated wiph him ever since on
the Committee of Commerce, one of
the most important of the Senate. On
that committee he has been one of the

merribefs, always ; present , and always

his state. t - ; : ," -
"Nq state 'has had a more attentive
and vigilant guardian of its Interests in
the Senate, Chan Senator McBride. He
is not only . faithful and active hi his
committee work, but also one of the
most faithful and watohf'il atte'Klaius of
the sessions of the Senate a matter in
which the so-called brilliant :iii are
often deficient. ; While he does not -worry
the Senate with speeches; yet in that
vast amount of department, C"!!..mit;ec
and general 4 legislation work, entailed
upon Senators rom Vestcnn ist?tes,
Ik is : always eloquent in ihe Aigdar.ce
and persistency with wh'ch he attends
to the, wants of his constituen;y. To
help a poor settler about his land claim,
or to secure an appropriation, "s f more
real value than the delivery JinJ mailing
of a flattering akktres. But what J ad
mire aboirt Senator McBride is nis in
tegrity and independence. J
In 1895 he was one of the .veryew
Senators from the far West who was
sound on the jmoney question.; When
iO many ovher good men were timid,
hesitated and doubted, he , came out
boldly for soumT TfidnTy and 'declared
himself in favor of sourwr ; money. 4t
was refreshing to sec that! quie-;: pale
faced man as firm as the rock df Gib
raltar on questions of finance. This fart
cave him the attention, ana gooa win
of the Senate -from the very start, and
the prestige has- not diminished, but.
from that tame ntu me present, nas in
creased, until tcday he is one of the
foremost men in the Senate in that
group of Senators -who w.v.te no "time

Such men are the working force of the
Senate and cannot be spaTedl" ;

Senator quite a length of time ti se
cure the recognition which hs been
accorded Senator McBride. and to en
able him to acquire that intlue-ice which
is so essential tn a Senator to secure fo
a state its full share of beneficial legis

since he first entered the Senate, and 1
don't hesitate to say that I woUId con

which he so ably represents."
Committees Bloat Important.
Senator Scott, of West Virgiijia, says:
"Senator M'Bride is'iny closest neigh
bor in the Senate, and I have the best
of opportunity to ncte the character of
the ""man and his work. lie is verv

In these committees I know that he
is regarded as "being one cf the most
conservative, and at the sam? time pos
itive and outspoken members. He is
not egotistical, and does not pretend to
know snore than any other member cf
the Senate, but he presents ris views
in a forcible, manlike and most con
vincing manner. The people of this
country, I believe, should take an ob
ject lesson from New' England n the
manner in whicfi that ?cti-n contin
ues its senators and represcntaHves it:
office. The New England Senators are
the men of the most influence and:pw
er in that 'hvly The rea-.on is .ibvious.
Men, who serve only one term, leave

their states. Senator McBride has n-w
attained to such a position, it .w juid re
quire a new man five of six years to
acquire the same standing, and the.i he
would have to be a conspicu.vtdy able
man. Personally. Sen ltor McBri 1; has

l Foremost Friend of Sound Money.
Representative Bahcock, chiirman of
the Republican congressional commit
tee, said: -
Senator McBride has been t ne of
the foremost friends of souid jncr-ey
principles on the Pacific coast. He has
advocated what he thought to be right
